The versatility and ruggedness of the products was appreciated by the team “We were both massively impressed with all the units we took with us, without them we are confi dent the footage would not be back safely in the UK. “ Patrick and Richard used Peli 0915 and 0945 memory card cases along with Peli 1020 Microcases for their hard drives and 1050 cases for peripheral equipment. One extreme to another… From the monsoonal rainforests of Papua New Guinea to the Arctic wastes of the Siberian tundra, Peli cases perform in all conditions as Producer/Director and Cameraman, Alexis Girardet explains “The key to working in these extreme and remote locations is protecting your kit against the multitude of conditions that are faced on a daily basis. I’ve been using Peli cases for years now and nothing has even come close in terms of protection and sheer quality. I know I can pack the most delicate of camera kit in a Peli case and then forget about it until needed. Not once has it let me down.” Peli Products (UK) have invested in developing their protective packaging services and now offer a wide range of specialised foams to suit individual packaging 66 | KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 100 APRIL 2015
